These mini Peach Thyme Galettes are made with fresh peaches, lime, cinnamon and thyme. They’re AIP, paleo and vegan, and the perfect summer dessert.
Trying to follow the autoimmune protocol while being an AIP baker is tough because sweets should be consumed in moderation on this protocol. In order to keep creating, testing and double testing delicious treats on the blog, I’ve been intentional about keeping the sugar content pretty low in my recipes.
Luckily, there are no shortage of delicious fruits that are naturally sweet and in season in North America right now. Fruits like berries, stone fruit and cherries develop an even sweeter flavour when baked and reduce the need for much added sugar.
In this Peach Thyme Galette recipe, fresh peaches are mixed with lime juice, thyme and cinnamon and placed in a flaky and crispy pie crust made with cassava flour, tapioca starch and coconut oil. The end result is not only delicious and beautiful.
I’ve made these into mini galettes, but the recipe makes enough pastry dough for one large galette. If you choose to make the latter, you may need to add a few more minutes onto the baking time to ensure a crispy and fully baked crust.
The key to success with this recipe is to work quickly and to ensure that your fat is completely frozen and remains so throughout the process. As I note in the recipe instructions, it’s important not to over-manipulate the pastry dough with your hands. This causes the oil to melt, and the dough to soften and it will then seep out of the pastry while baking.
Peach Thyme Galette FAQs
Can I use canned/ frozen peaches?
I wouldn’t recommend using canned or frozen peaches in this recipe. The water content of frozen fruits is too high and it will affect the crust and likely make it soggy.
How do I store these?
Store your galette in the fridge in a sealed container and bring to room temperature or heat in oven before serving.
Can I substitute the peaches?
Yes! Feel free to substitute peaches for 1.5 cups fresh blueberries or strawberries. Apples and pears also pair wonderfully with the thyme and cinnamon in this recipe and are a great choice for the Fall.
Can I make this recipe coconut-free/without coconut oil?
For a coconut free pastry crust try out my Mixed Berry Galette dough, and skip brushing the crust with coconut milk.
